Restaurant visit

My son’s SDS outcomes are for ‘anything which supports independence and socialisation’. Could this cover restaurant visit with his PA? Thankyou

Hi that’s an interesting use”anything that support independence and social “ I tried that use at my sons review and was told no? But why they state it must be an identifiable outcome! Following this as curious . SDS is meant to be individually needs met but I’m finding more stumbling blocks as it goes on

Yes we are finding a lot of road blocks and less and less autonomy at social worker level.

Hi I don’t think restaurant visit for him and his pa will be accepted. I found you can however book an outing package that may include lunch. Good luck :wink:

Thanks for that. Not quite sure what you mean by ‘outing package’?

Well said. There is always “no “”answer to such as restaurants visits or anything which would help towards independence. Saying that —social workers have huge powers and they decide what one is getting and what not… They often do not understand the family situation and cared for person outcomes.
It´s all about powers and money.

Hi there,

I have to say, my experience is that the front line SW have very limited power, everything seems to have to go higher up.
